Beauty,

and

Mystery

of this

Powerful Psalm

Prayers

and

Devotionals

based on the 103rd Psalm.


Psalm 103

is a special psalm to me.

-

It is the main Scripture I turn toaling.


When I am having a physical problem, I always turn to Psalm 103 to speak out the first 6 verses as a prayer to God.

I have found that many times I can directly relate speaking those words over and over with feeling better and better.


God's word isn't magic.

But it does contain

POWER

that is available

to those who live their life

devoted to Jesus.




God's word contains living power 

that is released

as we speak out

His Words.

~

God uses his Words

 - and our faith -

to do great things

in our body.

~


I have seen amazing miracles.


I have also seen times
when I didn't get healed of something.


I realize that walking in perfect health

is only available in heaven.

But

much better health

is available

as we speak out his Word

and stand with faith in his promises.

~ ~ ~


Sometimes healing comes and it comes so slowly that at the beginning - it is almost imperceptible.

Sometimes healing comes so quickly that it is amazingly miraculous.

When it is imperceptible, I must remind myself that God tells me that his Word IS powerful, so my job is to believe him.

Even if I do not see any results physically after continually praying this psalm for a particular ailment, I still believe that God's Word is blessing me mentally and emotionally  - if I do not take offense at not being physically healed.

In Matthew 11:6, Jesus was speaking about John the Baptist being in jail and during that conversation, he says, 

 And blessed is he,

whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Also note that I was once having a physical issue and I played Psalm 103 in Hebrew and felt the healing power of God coming into me.

Here is the one I use:

Comes from this page: https://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt26a3.htm


I cannot guarantee any healing results -

I can only share my experiences.


Loving God isn't just about miracles.

Loving God is about delighting in him - not just in times of need - but in every day and multiple moments in that day.

This page will give numerous devotions about the verses in Psalm 103.


This page is like a

mini-devotional prayer book on

Psalm 103 and Healing.


Psalm 103 Healing Prayer


Usually when I pray Psalm 103,

I just speak out the first 6 verses from

the Living Bible translation.

That prayer is my first choice when I need to be healed.


You can find that version at the bottom of the page.


Below I have taken the first 5 verses

and created a healing prayer

that might be of interest to you

as an additional prayer to pray.


I will bless the Holy Name of God with all my heart.

Yes, I will bless the Lord and not forget the glorious things he does for me.

He forgives my sins.....

Thank you, Father God, that you planned before the foundation of the world to make a way that we could be right with you and we could live with you for all eternity.

I ask that you forgive me of my sins and cleanse me of all unrighteousness.

I pledge today to be a follower of Jesus who tries to please my Lord each and every day  - in each and every way.

And I thank you that when I fail, 1 John 1:9 assures me that you are more than ready to forgive me.

He heals me.

Thank you, Lord, that you have made a way of healing for me.

Thank you that your word says, "By his stripes, I am healed."

Thank you that Jesus took stripes of punishment so I could take my healing from a loving God.


He ransoms me from hell.

Lord, your word says...

For there is one God and one intermediary between God and humanity, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself as a ransom for all, revealing God’s purpose at his appointed time. 1 Timothy 2:5-6 NET

He  [Jesus] gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time. 1 Timothy 2:6 NLT


Thank you that you paid the price for my sins. Thank you that you have the keys to release me from the chains of sickness that the enemy has put around me.

And thank you for saving me from personal strongholds and generational strongholds.

I will follow what your word says in James 4:7...

I will submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from me.

He surrounds me with loving kindness and tender mercies.

My youth is renewed like the eagles.


Thank you that you have the power to renew my body and even reverse the effects of aging. I will enlarge my ideas of what you can do.

Moses was 120 years old when he died, yet his eyesight was clear, and he was as strong as ever.

I will grow my faith to ask for big miracles.

I will grow my determination to make wise choices concerning my eating and my exercise.

And each day - whether my body is perfect or lacking something - I will continue to love and serve you with the passion of a bride awaiting her much-loved bridegroom on her wedding day.

These things I pray in Jesus' name,

Amen

A Prayer for Psalm 103 verse 6


He gives justice to all who are treated unfairly.


Thank you that your Word tells me that you will give me justice from all the things that the devil and his forces have done to me. Thank you that each day you frustrate their plans as you fight for me.

Thank you that one day you will rescue me from ALL their plans totally and permanently.

In the name of Jesus' and with loving devotion I pray,

Amen

There is power in speaking Psalm 103

Devotionals  based on Psalm 103


Bless the Lord, O my soul.

Psalm 103:1a KJV

 

In Psalm 103, we are taught to say,

"Bless the Lord, O my soul."


My soul is my mind, my will, and my emotions.


To bless the Lord with my mind, I must think about God, read the Bible, and pray to God.


To bless the Lord with my will, I must be obedient to God.


To bless the Lord with my emotions, I must work on self-control. I need to stir up godly emotions and take control over ungodly emotions.  I need to be aware that many things can powerfully pull at my emotions.


The people I choose to be around,
The circumstances that I allow in my life, and
The entertainment that I choose
will greatly affect
My emotions,
and
My mind, and My will.

The Trinity



A Bible verse in several translations

to consider:


1 Timothy 2:5-6a ERV

There is only one God, and there is only one way that people can reach God. That way is through Christ Jesus, who as a man 6 gave himself to pay for everyone to be free.

1 Timothy 2:5-6 NCV

There is one God and one mediator so that human beings can reach God. That way is through Christ Jesus, who is himself human. He gave himself as a payment to free all people. He is proof that came at the right time.

1 Timonty 2:5-6 GNT -

For there is one God, and there is one who brings God and human beings together, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself to redeem the whole human race. That was the proof at the right time that God wants everyone to be saved.
